Attention Middle and High Youth and Their Parents!
Beginning May 7th all youth (6th through 12th grades) are invited to join a new Bible study during Sunday School after worship! We’ll be working through the Answers Bible Curriculum from Answers in Genesis who are the folks behind The Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter. The curriculum takes us through the entire Bible and will provide a thorough understanding of the relevance of scripture, will teach us how to defend our faith and how to apply God’s Word to everyday life. The group will meet in the Sunday School room at the top of the stairs above the church office. Please see Erin Truelsen with questions or email at ekt7175@outlook.com. Come with an eagerness to learn
and share! Bring your Bible!

“What’s wrong, Bubba?” asked the pastor. “I need you to pray for my hearing,” said Bubba. The pastor put his hands on
Bubba’s ears and prayed. When he was done, he asked, “So how’s your hearing?” “I don’t know,” said Bubba. “It isn’t until next Tuesday.”
